Chronic Venous Insufficiency Disability Claims
Our Disability Insurance Attorneys Can Help You with Your CVI Claim
Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) occurs when your veins cannot send blood from your legs back to your heart. As a result, the veins will stay filled with blood, creating a host of unpleasant symptoms. People with CVI cannot sit or stand for long periods, which makes it difficult for them to maintain full-time jobs.
Fortunately, chronic venous insufficiency is a qualifying medical condition for both short-term and long-term disability benefits. If you need to take time off work to seek treatment and manage your illness, Dabdoub Law Firm can help. Our disability insurance attorneys have been handling claims involving CVI and other disabilities for more than 20 years, and we have experience with every major insurance company.
CVI can get worse as the disease progresses, so if you need help with your chronic venous insufficiency disability claim, do not hesitate to call us at (800) 969-0488 today.
Understanding Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Chronic venous insufficiency is the result of damaged valves in the veins and frequently appears following a blood clot in the deep veins of the legs (deep vein thrombosis). CVI is also associated with pelvic tumors, vascular malformations, extended sitting or standing, aging, and reduced mobility.
Approximately 40% of people in the United States have CVI, and it is more common in people over age 50. Women are more likely to experience CVI due to the hormone progesterone.
The symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency include:
- Swelling in the lower legs and ankles
- Aching or tiredness in legs
- Heaviness or cramping in legs
- Itching and tingling
- Pain that gets worse when standing
- Varicose veins (spider veins)
- Leathery-looking skin on the legs
- Flaking or itchy skin on the legs or feet
- Thickening and hardening of the skin on the legs and ankles
- Irritated or cracked skin
- Red, swollen, crusted, or weepy skin
- Slow-healing wounds or ulcers (stasis ulcers or venous stasis ulcers) on the legs or ankles
If left untreated, these symptoms can cause serious problems with the skin, tissue inflammation and internal tissue damage, and open sores on the skin’s surface. If the skin becomes infected, it can spread, turn into cellulitis, and cause serious health problems.
Because the treatment for CVI includes avoiding long periods of standing or sitting, many people cannot sustain full-time work while getting their condition under control.
This is exactly the time when your employer’s group disability plan or your own individual disability insurance can protect your income. Our chronic venous insufficiency claims lawyers can help you deal with disability insurance companies.
